NOBODY BOILS down Republican extremism better than Patrick J. Buchanan. Quoting F.D.R., then twisting it into an example for maximum affect, the Southern strategy guru is reeling it out on Fox these days, after MSNBC kicked him to the curb.
A writer who boiled down Bush’s Iraq war misadventurism better than most, Buchanan once offered a voice of what conservatism meant at its root. Now he’s a freaked out white man afraid minorities are going to ruin America as he sees it.
When he’s not railing against the brown and black, he’s hoping to hold off a female president to “2040 or 2050.”
Buchanan’s the spokesperson for Tea Party types and Paulites, who live in a world where facts aren’t accepted and hyperbole is the ode to their own fears and ignorance.
